Amarillo High tennis stars Eleanor Archer, Morgan Rose, Kelton Brown, and Wade Bryant take home state title in girls and boys doubles
AMARILLO, Texas (KFDA) - The UIL state tennis tournament down in San Antonio wrapped up today and two Amarillo High doubles teams took home state titles.
Girls doubles duo Eleanor Archer and Morgan Rose along with the boys doubles team of Kelton Brown and Wade Bryant both took home the gold.
Bryant and Brown won the state title match two sets to none, 7-6 and 6-3.
Archer and Rose dropped the first set 7-5 against the Liberty duo but came back to with the match two sets to one with a dominant 6-1 win in the final set.
“These four players capped off the most successful year in AHS tennis history!” Amarillo High tennis coach Koby Otto said after the victories. “Wade, Eleanor and Kelton are seniors who have led the program all four years and finished as few players ever can: as state champions!
“... Eleanor accomplished the “trifecta” of winning a state championship in singles, doubles and mixed doubles, a rare feat in 5A and 6A competition. All four have been to spring state multiple times and I am so incredibly happy they come home with these gold medals to go with their gold medals from the fall team tennis state championship. Their legacy is tremendous and unprecedented.”
It’s the second state title for Bryant and the third for Archer, both Archer (Washington University - St. Louis) and Bryant (University of Texas - Tyler) are set to continue playing tennis at the college level.
